Huntsman Corporation Research Report

Huntsman has increased its stake in Nippon Aqua Co., a company that produces

Hankins, President of Huntsman's Polyurethanes division, comments that Nippon
Aqua is well-positioned to satisfy the region's growing demand for more
effective insulation. Last quarter, the company's polyurethane sales volume
increased due to strong global demand for insulation, driven by the housing
and automotive recovery in North America. This is expected to continue in the
coming year, and this increased stake in Japan positions Huntsman to benefit
from insulation demand in new markets. The Full Research Report on Huntsman

Methanex Corporation (USA) Research Report

Shares of Methanex Corporation spiked after Jefferies Group upgraded Methanex
Corporation from Hold to Buy. The firm notes that "faster and longer methanol
peak" will be beneficial to the company in the near-term. For the coming year,
Methanex expects methanol demand from integrated methanol to olefins
facilities to be 52 million tons, while industrial production is also expected
to further stabilize demand. Lastly, energy-related applications are expected
to increase its demand for methanol in gasoline blending and dimethyl ether
(DML), especially in China. This increased demand is expected to further boost
sales for the company as it expands its production capacity. Methanex recently
expanded its New Zealand operations to increase its production by 700,000 tons
to 2.2 million tons by the end of 2013. This expansion plan is expected to
enhance the company's supply capability to fast-growing Asian markets and add
value for shareholders. The Full Research Report on Methanex Corporation (USA)
